COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Has been seen in cask.
This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

Bottle from morrisons. Deep maroon with a small white head. Aroma is nicely fruity with lemon and also piney hops and a touch of golden syrup. Taste is sweet with good biting bitterness. Oily medium body with decent carbonation.

Towey1989 (3038) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, candied orange, spicy berries, leather and some toasty malt. Taste of toasty malt, caramel, resin, orange, berries and subtle grapefruit. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A citrus, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. This is a good beer, sweet with good citrusy bitterness. Packs quite a punch for a 6.2 aswell.

(Bottle) Clear red with little white head. Pleasant subtle hoppy aroma. Medium body with excellent carbonation. Nice hoppy bitterness from start to the very long finish. Some gentle sweetness. Overall a nice and unusual combination.

Brown bottle, 330ml, Morrison’s Aberdeen. Scent is mild toasted grain. Pours dark ruby amber, transparent with a tan head subsiding average. Weak on the nose. Taste is medium grainy bitter hops with light sweet hints. Finish is dry, little harsh. Decent.

Bottle. Chewy toffee with a fair amount of herbal and grassy hops. Slightly unusual but in a good way.

at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Lovely marmalade aroma aroma. Deep rich bronze colour. Loads of toffee malt but thankfully balanced by a black pepper bitterness and there’s an aromatic hop floating in the background.Ah just seen this is dry hopped which explains that. Not my style but I do like this.

Was expecting great things from the score. Good beer with nice caramel and hoppy flavours but nothing extraordinary IMHO.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

BBE 03.07.2015 - Pours copper orange with a massive foamy head. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops, loads of caramel, toffee and malts. Taste is juicy, chewy malty and caramely with some toffee, herbal notes and grassy hoppiness. Finish is bitter, chewy malty and caramely with some toffee. Okay.

Gary (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
330ml ; called Infa Red Oxymoronic IPA and more conservative as its lower boost than on the database @ 6.2 ... Drank from a Chimay goblet I guess its sorta nice while watchin the cricket on tv kinda beer ... its a soulless enough beer to drink with out thinking about its fucken nuance ,yet populated with flavour - is that an oxymoron ? . This nose is floral grapefruit hops ,resin, nutty malts ,maybe some strawberry or lychee ; deep red, looks tight- a subtle beige head too ; And it dranks big powerful kinda chewey caramel crystal malt personality - with handfuls of sticky rich hops -giving birth to grapefruit , pine. grass . Nicely there is some dryness to this as its pretty rich ... Ive got 5 more bootles. I will drop it down maybe . I can’t see it gettin’ higher points !

Bottle from morrisons. Dark copper beer with medium head and patchy lacing. Aroma is dry red leaf and malts. Taste is malts, caramel, dry leaf, some pine resin and a little smoke. Slight touch of oil on the palate. Very good.
